Aleksa Avramovic emerged as the hero for Partizan in the Belgrade derby against Crvena Zvezda. He scored 14 points, showcasing impressive accuracy with 4 out of 5 from two-point range.

Avramovic’s defining moment came when he sank the decisive three-pointer, securing the lead for Zeljko Obradovic’s team late in the game, ultimately leading to their victory at the Stark Arena.

Speaking to the Serbian media after the encounter, he commented on his team’s performance.

“We showed character and after ten games we finally did something. A big deal in an ordinary game, we will play many more derbies this season. We shouldn’t get carried away, we fired all the guns, believe me. We ended up winning,” the guard commented.

He also said the focus is already on the next derby against the red-and-white side in the ABA League.

“Let’s move on, we have a rest day to spend with our families, and then training to prepare for an even more important duel with Crvena Zvezda in the ABA League. Every next one is the most important, there is no euphoria, let’s move on,” Avramovic added.
